This is a nice little southern dish--great comfort food. You may use homemade drop dumplings in place of the canned biscuits if you wish. Prep time will be longer with the fresh peas and dumplings.
- Shell and wash peas; drain.
- Combine water, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Add peas and simmer 5 minutes.
- Melt butter in a heavy sauce pan over low heat. Add the flour and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk; cook over medium heat stirring constantly until thick and bubbly. Stir the sauce into the peas.
- Top with biscuits and sprinkle lightly with onion salt. Cover and cook 15 minutes or until the biscuits are done.
